Etna is a still active volcano located in southern Italy, more precisely in the eastern area of Sicily.

With its 3,323 m high it is the highest volcano in Europe. The surface area of its base is 1,600 km, the volcano develops upwards with a rather regular conical shape, then truncated at the top by a plateau which should be the remnant of an ancient crater.

In addition to the central crater, there are also some smaller craters, around 260, arranged along the fractures of the volcanic cone. Along the sides you can then find furrows hundreds of meters wide, most likely caused by the eruptions that have taken place over the centuries.
